    The Obama's paintings that are scheduled to be in the Smithsonian were painted by an artist that has painted black women with decapitated heads of white women.

    I'm not sure where to go with this.......so I'll let you read the story.

    http://dailycaller.com/2018/02/12/wiley-painted-beheaded-white-woman/

    Former President Barack Obama’s portrait painter once depicted a black woman holding the cutoff head of a white woman in a reimagining of a story from the book of Judith.

    Kehinde Wiley, the painter of Obama’s portrait for the National Portrait Gallery, reimagined the story of Judith beheading Holofernes from the deuterocanonical Book of Judith as a black woman beheading a white woman years ago.

    Who would’ve thought? A black person depicting violence towards a white person.. Never heard of that before. Nothing will be said about it because A. It’s Obama and B. it’s Obama.

    From that news(?) story:

    "Many of Wiley’s paintings usually envision black people at the forefront of historical events, as “the whole conversation of my work has to do with power and who has it.”"

    But, from all I've read, blacks can't be racist because "they don't have the power." This guy seems to think otherwise.

    I guess that there is also a big broo-ha-ha over a new sculpture of Queen Nefertiti that is claimed that the face has been "whitewashed."
